Okey Dokey, I've been at it again. The good thing about these challenges is that it concentrates the mind and enables you to focus on a suggestion that can then be used to create not only a challenge submission but a card to send.
Go over to the Just Magnolia blog http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com/ to see the details of the sketch challenge.
I stamped the Magnolia bench directly onto K & Co Sparkly Sweet paper using Versafine Vintage Sepia and then coloured with water colour pencil in brown.
Tilda was stamped and then cut out to sit on the bench and I also coloured her in using water colour pencils. I only have a few Copic pens at the moment and need more practice at my colouring with them. The balloon string was added freehand in pen (my cutting out isn't that good!).
After edging the green paper with the Versafine it all matted onto a contrasting paper from the same K & Co range.
The ribbon, being sheer organza, was pleated to give it some depth.
Embroidery silk was added to the heart buttons, and the petals falling from the large flower were cut from a smaller flower.
I hope you like it.
